Franchising vs Starting from Scratch — What’s the Difference?

  • February 18, 2020

Congratulations! You’ve been thinking about starting your own business and are considering franchising in the fast food industry as your way of doing so. Naturally, we think that’s a great idea, especially when you compare it to the alternative, which is to start your fast food restaurant from scratch. Going it alone usually means taking on all the responsibilities by yourself, but when you partner with a franchise brand like Hot Dog on a Stick, you get immediate access to benefits and expertise that wouldn’t otherwise be available to you. Here, we’ll take a closer look at just a few of the advantages there are to joining our brand family and how they can make a real difference.

A Beloved Brand 

One of the most important benefits of franchising in the fast food industry with Hot Dog on a Stick is the immediate access you’ll get to our beloved name. Ours is a brand that appeals to folks of all ages, and starting your franchise business with us allows you to take advantage of our unique position in the fast food industry. Nobody does it quite like Hot Dog on a Stick, and when you open your doors with us you’ll quickly become a much-loved member of your community. You simply can’t get this immediate recognition when you start your business from scratch, and why so many entrepreneurially-minded people decide that partnering with a franchise brand like Hot Dog on a Stick makes a lot of sense.

A Time-Tested Business Model

Hot Dog on a Stick has been delighting consumers since 1946 — and that’s a very long time! No brand lasts that long unless they’re doing something right, and when you partner with us to start your franchise in the fast food industry you’ll benefit from our time-tested and proven business model that takes a lot of the guesswork out of running your business. It acts as a sort of roadmap to growth that’s not available to you when you begin your restaurant from scratch. Our business model includes access to a broad network of teams and services, including:

  • Service providers
  • Corporate agents and franchise owners
  • Support teams
  • Preferred vendor

These resources are important for many reasons, especially because having access to them will free you up to focus on the most important goal of all — growing your business!

Franchising in the Fast Food Industry: Training and Support 

Many new business owners who start from scratch worry about their past professional experience: do they have enough of it to franchise in the fast food industry? Well, when you partner with Hot Dog on a Stick, you won’t have to worry about that! We make sure all our new franchisees see incomparable training and support that helps prepare them for business before, during, and after they open their restaurant. All our franchisees attend a state-of-the-art franchise training center where they learn everything they need to know about operating their business on a day-to-day basis, including:

  • Running the back office
  • Maintaining bookkeeping
  • Managing human resources and personnel
  • Implementing our systems

At Hot Dog on a Stick, we know that our success as a brand depends on the success of each and every one of our franchise partners, so we go out of our way to support them every step of the way.
